In recent years, Nanning attaches great importance to the health of senior citizens. Taking the opportunity of being listed in the first medical-health integration pilot cities in China, Nanning has taken solid measures to further promote elderly-care service and strived to build a new service pattern with effective integration of medical, health, recovery and nursing.
It is understood that in order to explore and establish a mechanism of medical-health integration available for Nanning, the city has selected 12 units as medical-health integration pilot units at city level, and coordinated all policies and resources to support the pilot work. The city also encourages all units to innovate boldly, so as to promote the organic integration of medical service and elderly care service. At present, there are 245 health-care institutions in Nanning which have licenses of both medical institution and elderly-care institution, 64 medical institutions which have established cooperative mechanisms with elderly-care institutions, and 273 elderly-care institutions which can provide medical and health services for the elderly. Most counties, districts and development zones have built more than one medical-health integration pilot project, and more and more senior citizens in Nanning have enjoyed excellent elderly-care services.
